This topic is dear to my heart as I am a huge fan of Planner Application. Planner was not necessarily spoiled with a flood of new features like we are accustomed to with Teams, SharePoint, and other applications. So any new capabilities/new features within Planner are welcome and celebrated. One feature we recently got was the ability to create recurring tasks in Planner. So let me explain how they work.
Up until now, we could only create one-time tasks. However, sometimes you have tasks that need to be recurring (occur regularly). For example, you need everyone on the team to submit project updates/Project Status Reports to the Project Manager every Friday and want to make sure this task appears in a Project plan and is visible to all the project members. So in this post, I would like to explain how to achieve recurring tasks in Planner.
Microsoft Planner is a project management tool that is part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite of productivity applications. It allows you to create and manage tasks, set deadlines, assign tasks to team members, and track progress.
With Microsoft Planner, you can create a visual representation of your project by creating a plan and adding tasks and assignments to it. You can also use Planner to communicate with team members and collaborate on tasks by adding comments and attaching files.
Planner is a cloud-based tool, so you can access it from any device with an internet connection. It is also integrated with other Microsoft Office apps, such as Outlook and OneNote, which makes it easy to manage your project tasks alongside your other work.
Overall, Microsoft Planner is a useful tool for individuals and teams who need to manage and track the progress of projects, tasks, and assignments. It can help you stay organized and on track, and keep your team members informed and engaged.
